‘TIS THE SEASON TO READ THE SUMMER MAG!
Dylan Alcott, homeschooling, ADHD, new CF wonder drug – just like Christmas, there really is something for everyone in our latest edition of Source Kids magazine.
Homeschooling, or home education, has steadily grown in popularity over the past decade. But since COVID, parents are leaving mainstream schools in huge numbers and many neurodiverse, children with chronic illnesses and disabilities are finding a better fit outside the traditional education model. We investigate why.
In an exclusive interview, Dylan Alcott reflects on his remarkable 2022 as Australian of the Year, shares the advice he’d give to his younger self and reveals his dreams for 2023 and beyond.
We are thrilled to be introducing a new initiative, The Source Awards, a celebration of the determination, courage and triumphs of our kids, for all that they have achieved this year.
It might be toilet training, learning to ride a bike, developing the physical control to shake their head, learning to use their communication device, coping with yet another surgery or trying a new food.
We have created four Source Award certificates for parents, carers, therapists and educators to download. You can add the child’s name, achievement and a special note.
Then, we want to celebrate them with you. Upload a pic of your award winner with their certificate and let’s give these amazing humans the recognition and praise they deserve.
We roadtest trikes and bikes to get you out and about this summer, as well as compare the latest smartwatches that may be heading for your child’s Christmas stocking.
Read all about Trikafta, the cystic fibrosis wonder drug changing lives. And we also have Back to School covered, with a guide on what “Reasonable adjustments” you can ensure your school is making, as well as a handy how-to guide on creating a one pager for your school, with everything they need to know about your child.
